My First Christmas In Heaven

This poem was written by a 13 year old boy who died of a brain tumor that he had battled for four years. He died on December 14, 1997. He gave this to his mom before he died. His name was Ben.




My First Christmas In Heaven

I see the countless 

Christmas trees 
around the world below 
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars,
reflecting on the snow


The sight is so spectacular, 

please wipe away the tear 
For I am spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year.


I hear the many Christmas songs 

that people hold so dear 
But the sounds of music can't compare 
with the Christmas choir up here.


I have no words to tell you, 

the joy their voices bring, 
For it is beyond description, 
to hear the angels sing.


I know how much you miss me, 

I see the pain inside your heart. 
But I am not so far away, 
We really aren't apart.


So be happy for me, dear ones, 

You know I hold you dear. 
And be glad I'm spending Christmas 
with Jesus Christ this year.


I sent you each a special gift, 

from my heavenly home above. 
I sent you each a memory 
of my undying love.


After all, love is a gift more precious 

than pure gold. 
was always most important 
the stories Jesus told.


Please love and keep each other, 

my Father said to do. 
I can't count the blessing or love 
has for each of you.


So have a Merry Christmas and 

Wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year
